U.S. Dept. of Commerce Approves Governor’s Request for Apalachicola Bay

Tallahassee, Fla. – February 26, 2014, Governor Rick Scott announced that the U.S. Department of Commerce has approved $6.3 million for Apalachicola Bay in disaster assistance funding. The funding is for the affected oyster industry which can be used to help the restoration of the Apalachicola Bay and affected oystermen. This disaster assistance funding follows Governor Scott’s request for a commercial fishery failure.

Governor Scott said, “This $6.3 million in assistance funding will help to provide immediate assistance to strengthen both Franklin County and the entire Apalachicola Region. We will be able to help the families of our oystermen devastated by the collapse of Apalachicola Bay, and provide job training so families in the region are able to support their loved ones for generations to come.”
